7 Fabulous Formal Hairstyles for Short Hair (PHOTOS)

short hair stylesI have short hair, and I love it. I love how easy it is to get ready in the morning, I love how fast it dries. I love the way it frames my face and how cool it makes me look when I wear long, dangling earrings. The only thing I don't like about having short hair? Trying to find a pretty and stylish way to wear it when it comes to formal occasions.

Sure, I could always rock it the same way I do every day, but would I do that if I had long hair? No way. Something about an 'updo' or blow-out screams "fanciness" in the best possible way. But don't despair. Shorties, you can have your manageable locks and eat them too (I mean, please don't actually eat your hair, I was just being cute, mkay).

It's so much easier than you think to play up your short hair. There are so many options that might seem like way too much for the long-haired to pull off that you can do with aplomb! Hair jewelry? Done! A funky hat? Don't mind if I do! Retro finger waves? Bring. It. On. We've put together 7 fabulous formal short-haired looks sure to inspire you to great hair heights!

How do you dress up your short hair?
